Well I get the wife or the shop to do it for me, but as for tips put any awkward shapes in a box then wrap it or just put the item in a gift bag.

i used to be the same but i bought one of they things that goes round your hand and you just pull a piece of tape out and when its done you buy the refill they are great i think i got it from a deal on here at tesco! hubby was laughing at me all strapped up and ready to go!

Best way is not to wrap all of your prsents in the one sitting.You'll get peed off if you've got a load.

As soon as you buy it, wrap it.That's what i've been doing for the past few months anyway.

Or just buy gift bags and sod the wrapping.
